Episode 21: MI, That’s A Good Dog
Papa’s Dogs and More Pretzel Bun: Topped with Yellow Mustard, Onions and Coney Sauce. The dense pretzel bun is great, and the dog is a high quality dog that pairs well with the bun. As a Detroit Fanatic, I love a good coney, and this dog is a great alternative to the traditional coney. The only thing about this dog is that the bun is a little on the salty side. The bun has a great pretzel flavor that does not otherwise compromise the flavor of the dog. Add coney sauce, onions and mustard you got yourself a great find. Rating: 4 out of 5 Dads.
PD&M Honey Wheat Bun: Topped with Onions, Yellow Mustard, Coney Sauce, Cheese, Pickle Shreddies. A departure, condiment wise, from a true coney, but with the sweetness of the honey wheat bun, I think it was a good call. The bun here is a little on the heavy side, not as dense, but more pound-cake-like. The sweeter bun and dog combo still works, and is quite appealing. The extra chewing is weird at first, but in order to support the dog as they cook, I can see why they use a denser, heavier bun. Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Dads.
Snicker Doodle Cookie: A delicate shell surrounding an almost creamy cookie. This is a great cookie, and a nice desert after some great dogs. The cinnamon is perfect to transition from savory to sweet. It is a crisp on the edges, and chewy in the middle, the prefect kind of cookie. Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Dads.
Orange Creamcicle Cookie: Get it. White chocolate chunks in an orange zest-infused sugar cookie. Orange cream is so good. Yeah, go get one, now. Rating: 5 out of 5 Dads.
Faygo and Better Made Chips are always a 5 out of 5 in my book, especially when the Detroit Tigers win a day game against a potential ALCS contender. Happy Baseball Season, and if you’re at the park this summer, are you gonna finish that?
